    The Justice Department is expected to bring an antitrust action against Google in coming weeks, focusing on its dominance in online search and whether it was used to stifle competition and hurt consumers, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press Thursday. The department also is examining Google’s online advertising practices, said the person, who could not discuss an ongoing investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. Antitrust officials at the department briefed state attorneys general Thursday on the planned action against Google, seeking support from states across the country that share concerns about Google’s conduct. The...

    The Senate Commerce Committee is planning to subpoena the executives of Google, Facebook and Twitter to testify at an Oct. 1 hearing on the law that gives tech companies a legal liability shield if they do not agree to appear voluntarily by Thursday night. A spokesperson for the committee confirmed to The Hill that Chairman Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) intends to issue the subpoenas and believes their testimony to be crucial. Politico first reported on the subpoena threat. Spokespeople for Twitter and Facebook declined to comment. A spokesperson for Google did not immediately return a request for comment. The hearing is...
  • Facebook, Google Partner with Liberal Org for 2020 Election Strategy

    It looks like the harbingers Dr. Robert Epstein had warned the country about regarding liberal Big Tech’s influence in elections is coming true. Big Tech giant Facebook informed the Media Research Center that it would be partnering with the nonpartisan digital encyclopedia Ballotpedia and the radical left-wing organization Democracy Works to help formulate the online platform’s 2020 election strategy. What makes this partnership so damning is that Democracy Works in particular has been heavily funded with millions collectively by at least six liberal organizations between 2012 and 2019. Also concerning is that Big Tech giant Google is also working with...

    To appreciate what Google has done, you need to start with search engines other than Google. I’m betting that your results will echo mine. The search engines I chose were Bing, DogPile, and DuckDuckGo. These are all among Google’s top competitors. In each of these search engines, I typed the words “Joe Biden.” In all three, one of the top suggested searches was “Joe Biden dementia”: I then expanded the search by adding the word “has.” The search engines offered me a whole menu of possibilities related to Biden’s mental competence: What these three search engines reflect is that some...

  • Joe Biden threatens ‘personal price’ if business leaders oppose attempts to unionize

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Monday threatened to impose “a personal price” on business leaders if they resist attempts to unionize during his presidency. Biden made the threat as he vowed to be the most pro-union president in history during a Labor Day webstream with AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka. “I’m going to hold company executives personally liable for interfering with workers who are attempting to unionize. It’s not enough just to have their corporations pay a fine. If they’re part of the problem, they are going to pay a personal price,” Biden said.

    Attorney General William Barr overruled career lawyers in the Department of Justice (DOJ), setting a deadline for federal prosecutors to file an antitrust lawsuit against Alphabet—the parent company of Google—by the end of the month, The New York Times reported on Thursday. According to the report, the team of attorneys who have been working on the case for more than a year strongly oppose the deadline as being too soon to bring a strong case against the tech giant. They worry that Barr is more concerned about filing the high-profile lawsuit before November’s presidential election than allowing the department to...

    Please sign the petition if you agree. Force Google to Share its Monopolized Data (API) as a Public Commons. Google can't "own" the data in its database, that is intellectual property belonging to its content creators of all sizes, most small, average writers, thinkers and artists. Dr. Robert Epstein, testifying before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution on June 16, 2019, advocated the most equitable solution, for the U.S. Government to mirror AT&T's 1956 anti-monopoly Consent Decree sharing its technical patents with all other companies free of charge, resulting in vastly increased technical development and economic prosperity.

  • Google Refuses to Show Negative Search Suggestions About Black Lives Matter

    Breitbart News ^ | 9/1/2020 | Allum Bokhari
    Google’s search autocomplete feature fails to generate negative suggestions for the term “BLM,” in stark contrast to other search engines. Typing the words “BLM is” on Google currently only returns the suggestion “BLM israel.” It does not show a long list of suggestions, which is unusual for a popular search term and suggests that a list of suggestions formerly existed but was removed. Typing “BLM is ” with a space after “is” generates no search suggestions at all — highly unusual for a search term that has recently seen a massive spike in attention from users.

    Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., announced his strong opposition to Utah Sen. Mike Lee’s S.386 outsourcing bill, likely sinking the Utah Republican’s bill for the rest of the year. Lee’s S.386 bill aids the tech industry and visa workers from India and China “at the expense of American workers, highly skilled immigrants, workers from Latin America and Europe, as well as Florida’s most important industries,” Scott wrote in the August 31 op-ed in the Miami Herald.He continued: I’ve heard from many constituents about how this bill would impact people in Florida, especially those who came to Florida from Latin America.

    Design and Development Today ^ | August 27, 2020 | Michael Liedtke
    Google's own engineers were troubled by the way the company secretly tracked the movements of people who didn't want to be followed until a 2018 Associated Press investigation uncovered the shadowy surveillance, according to unsealed documents in a consumer fraud case. The behind-the-scenes peek stems from a three-month-old lawsuit against Google filed by Arizona's attorney general. The files, unsealed late last week, reveal that Google knew it had a massive problem on its hands after an AP article published in August 2018 explained how the company continued to track users' whereabouts even after they had disabled the feature Google called...

    White House counselor Kellyanne Conway suggested Wednesday that President Donald Trump might postpone his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention due to concerns about Hurricane Laura’s potentially devastating impact on the Gulf Coast. Asked whether Trump would delay his headliner address set to take place on Thursday, the final night of Republicans’ four-day nominating event, Conway told reporters that campaign officials would not rule out a possible adjustment to the convention schedule.

    Conservatives want the federal government to stop social media companies from interfering in the presidential election. American Principles Project Director of Government Affairs Jon Schweppe sent an open letter to the Federal Election Commission demanding it investigate how Big Tech companies are meddling with elections. The recent GOP nomination of Laura Loomer in the U.S. House race for Florida’s 21st Congressional district shows how the electoral game has changed, and conservative organizations are taking notice. Schweppe argued in his open letter that while Loomer has been censored by multiple platforms “[d]ue to past controversial comments,” the fact that she “is...

    The months of protests and riots in Portland have prompted some businesses in the city to opt to move out completely or relocate outside its central district, according to a report on Monday. Greg Goodman, the co-president of the Downtown Development Group, said in a letter to Mayor Ted Wheeler and members of the Portland City Council that the exodus of companies wasn’t related to the Black Lives Matter movement “but does have most everything to do with the lawlessness you are endorsing downtown.” “The number is like nothing I have seen in 42 years of doing business in downtown,”...
